Fingertip layback to the level of the "Tomb." Then continue up the outside corner to the right with another layback move or two.


To the right of "Tomb" is a left-facing fingertip dihedral.


Small (finger-sized) gear. A couple of fist-sized pieces for the belay.

James has a great photo over at "Two Finger Cracks." The route goes up the left edge of the hanging pillar between "Tomb" and "Two Finger Cracks."
